Saint Patty’s Day Cinema….The Quiet Man

Happy St. Patty’s Day Folks! 💚🍀🍻 House smells amazing with the aroma of corned beef and cabbage,,,potatoes and carrots and Irish soda bread! Looking forward to our wonderful meal and then we’ll be watching one of my favorite movies.. The Quiet Man. I just love the two of them together!

What better way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day then to watch John Ford’s, “The Quiet Man” (1952). It’s been 64 St. Patrick’s Days (including today) since the premiere of The Quiet Man, but it’s been a lot longer since John Ford first wanted to make the film back in 1933 after reading Maurice Walsh’s, “The Quiet Man”, a short story first published in the Saturday Evening Post.
